4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft in a flight at Ground Control. Pours a bright, clear gold with a finger of white head that laces the glass. Aroma of malts - pils, pale, cracker - with straw, light grass, and light citrus. Flavor of lemon citrus, pale and crackery and bready malts, straw, and grass. Dry, malty finish. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and an unbelievably clean mouthfeel despite the noticeable malts throughout. So good. Could drink this everyday.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brilliant straw gold with white head that fades rather quickly. Aroma is grassy, herbal, and slightly citrusy/lemony. Flavor is sweet pils malt at the front, crackery malt and hops in the middle leading to a grassy, dry finish. Carbonation is pretty high but it seems right for this beer. Finish is quite dry. A very tasty and sessionable beer. One of the best american lagers out there.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear light gold with a quickly settling thick white head. Aroma is slightly skunked with some honey-like sweetness and some Noble hop notes. Taste mostly follows suit but adds some light tea notes. Medium mouthfeel and strong carb. Seems like this is past its prime. Will try to re-rate.

Light body, refreshing, easy to drink. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale straw pour with bone white head. Bubbles continue to maintain a crown. This bottle has to be pretty fresh, but there is still a good bit of skunk in the nose. Also a little dough and herbal noble hops. A little skunk in the flavor as well. Honeyed toast, mint, lemon. Pretty firm bitterness in the back . Light and dry. Mouthfeel is moderate. A really nice crisp refreshing pilsner. Seems to have the same problem as Prima Pils, which is that it's a great beer that is just destined to suffer from life in a bottle. I'd love to see this one on tap or in cans.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle pours with a crystal clear gold body that supports a thin white head of foam. The aroma offers up a nice mix of pilsner malts, spicy hops, a dash of floral hops and then a faint grainy malt note in the background. The taste starts with a pleasing fairly rich mix of pilsner malts and spicy slightly onion like hoppiness. Sweetness and more pilsner malts with a dash of floral hop bubble up about midway and into the finish. I love the hoppiness and how they keep the pilsner malt and malt sweetness in check.
